Extension Task Forces

Each task force works on one or more priorities, addressing a high-priority need. The work of a task force aligns with the OSU Extension vision, mission, and values; and it demonstrates our relevance to Ohioans.

  • A task force is formally commissioned and given license to exist, per the director of Extension.
  • A task force is not long-term; it has a specific term limit.
  • A task force is statewide and issue-oriented; the issue addressed affects multiple counties.
  • A task force involves a combination of state/campus and county/field personnel. 

A task force is not a work group; each task force can have sub-committees.
